Explore: Wisteria Tunnel, Japan
In Washington, D.C., during the spring time, the cherry blossoms begin to bloom, and people come from all over to celebrate the nation’s unofficial symbol of the start of spring. Asia’s way to welcome spring is through wisteria festivals and one of the most photographic ones is pictured above. This beautiful, ethereal flower walkway is the Wisteria Tunnel in the Kawachi Fuji Garden in Japan. This type of place would be an inspiration for one of Monet’s watercolor paintings. From mid-April to mid-May, the wisteria trellises bloom in full force, with purple and white flowers growing overhead for an 80 meter stretch. By looking up, it’s like you’re walking underneath bundles of floral chandeliers.
